In December 1983, the Amarillo Area Foundation donated the building site, located at the gateway to the Harrington Regional Medical Center. Ground was broken on May 17, 1984.
The first blood donation given by Jim Doche, the principal architect of the project, on February 4, 1985. The ceremonial ribbon was cut on February 20, 1985, by Mrs. Joe Coffee, wife of Joe F. Coffee. When completed, the cost of the fully equipped and furnished building was $750,000.
In 1992-1994, an expansion and renovation project was constructed, doubling the size of the facility and providing upgraded laboratories.
In January 2007, the Coffee Memorial Blood Center moved out of the building and into a new facility.
